Mini Update: A Dwarf Crossbowman for Frostgrave – old or new?

Admittedly it was a while back that I was looking to take part in a Frostgrave tournament at my local club. Other things got in the way but I did begin the process of gathering a warband together for the purpose (half the fun really).

I decided I wanted a Crossbowman (Marksman) in the band. Whilst I had plenty of human types for this purpose I decided to make mine a dwarf – but which one? Rummage, rummage, rummage. I found a recent purchase from Hasslefree Miniatures which was perfect. But I also came across a couple of very old Citadel dwarfs from way back. The paint jobs were not terrible so I decided to touch them up a bit and give them a new opportunity to get on to the tabletop.

So, old or new? Citadel vs Hasslefree?

The trio again, joined by a Survivor Dwarf character from Zombicide Black Plague. Interesting scale comparison.
